Looking for a Paleo Crockpot Chicken Soup? Try my Paleo chicken soup slow cooker recipe today for an easy good for you soup recipe.
I’ve shared several of my favorite paleo soup recipes on the blog in the past. Have you had a chance to try this Paleo seafood soup yet?
Or, this savory Paleo pumpkin soup is popular around the holidays. You could also make it with butternut squash if you prefer.
Paleo Crockpot Chicken Soup Recipe
I’ve been working on a Paleo chicken soup recipe – slow cooker style – since the last thing I want to do when I’m not feeling great is to spend tons of time in the kitchen. It seems as though sickness has invaded our home.
We are all sniffling, sneezing, coughing, or otherwise not feeling that fantastic. I really like home remedies for when we aren’t feeling well.
A sore throat gets tea with lemon and honey. A cold gets chicken noodle soup – or it used to. Since my daughter is gluten intolerant, noodles aren’t a good choice unless they are gluten-free.
Since I’m following the Paleo diet, even gluten-free noodles and rice are out of the picture.
I try very hard to buy local, organic foods to use when I cook. I like supporting our local economy and I like knowing that the foods we eat really are safe to eat.
That said, I cannot always find everything I want local or organic. Vermont has a very short growing season and limited options for organic food. When I cannot buy local organic, I choose organic.
If I cannot find local or organic, I try to find all-natural, scrub the heavens out of it or substitute another ingredient. Do the best you can with the options you have.
I really like crackers with my soup. But, traditional crackers don’t work with the Paleo diet. Thankfully there are Paleo crackers that do. These crackers are Paleo friendly and really good!
How to make a slow cooker chicken soup
Really, it’s quite simple to turn almost any chicken noodle soup into something that’s suitable for the Paleo diet. You just need to remove any of the grains or starches and dairy products.
What you’re left with is generally chicken and vegetables. Provided you skip things that are carb-heavy like potatoes and corn, you should be all set.
If you want a keto chicken soup recipe, it’s about the same thing. Avoid carbs and processed foods. Start with fresh, minimally processed ingredients.
Can I have chicken broth on Paleo or keto?
You definitely can. For the healthiest option, look for a chicken bone broth rather than a traditional chicken stock or broth when you make this Paleo Crockpot chicken soup.
